sign2sing is an annual event, organised by the Deaf Health Charity SignHealth, which raises essential funds to help vulnerable deaf children and adults.
Taking part in sign2sing is easy and we will help you with everything you need to learn our song in sign language, organise a special performance and fundraise for SignHealth.
At sign2sing, we are passionate about the use of sign language.
sign2sing provides your group with the opportunity to become Deaf aware while also raising money for a charity that is working to break down the barriers that Deaf people face.
You can use our resources to teach your group more about Deaf culture and learn some basic signs and letters.
sign2sing started in 2011- at this time our mission was to break the world record for having the most people signing and singing at the same time in the world.
We set records with our attempts and on 6th of February 2013 we broke and still retain the record for "Most people performing sign language" with 116,980 people.
We have produced a number of songs ourselves since 2011 and now in September 2018 we are using a well-known pop song for the first time. We hope that this will encourage even more people to take part than ever before.
SignHealth is a UK registered charity, established in 1986, dedicated to providing and improving healthcare services for people who are culturally Deaf (people who are profoundly Deaf and who use sign language to communicate).
SignHealth’s vision is a world where there are no barriers to good health and well-being for Deaf people and our projects and services have been designed to transform the lives of those who are facing significant life challenges, in order to prevent the high rate of mental and physical health issues experienced.
We campaign for equal rights/opportunities for Deaf people; provide supported housing; provide specialist services (psychological therapy and advocacy) in British Sign Language, provide support and coping strategies to survivors of domestic abuse; ensure better access to mainstream health services; develop innovative communication solutions and undertake research into Deaf Health.
